I have this Harrison 3 core A-body V8 radiator and want to make sure what it fits.
I know the date is Feb but not sure if that is a C K or O K and what it fits.

Thanks for any help.

Could be out of a truck.
i think you're right Ole. With your information, I found a similar radiator with an upturned lower outlet.
https://www.google.com/search?q=197...UICygC&biw=1280&bih=566#imgrc=JnlqeVxhAd4QvM: 1967-72 GM Truck L6 / V8 with AT 3 Row Copper/Brass Radiator (17" x 28-3/8" x 2" Core)

Radiator in question may be for auto trans as appears to have a trans cooler.

A "what does this radiator" fit question is the one that almost never gets an answer.Sometimes a couple of people will try to help out (props to Al & Ole ) but I have never seen a link to a Radiator listing or anything of that kind. I have 2 or 3 Harrison radiators that I don't know what they fit and I've done search after search and have never found any definative site or link to a site,so what's the big mystery ? why are the answer's and information so hard to get?

^^^That's understood but what about the letter stamping on the tanks and the tags on the core ?

That could be tricky to decode, different manufacturers often would make the same part and thus different number codes. Also they used to have a trade school were i live and they would rebuild radiators, they had a big OK stamp that they would punch into the radiators that were worth rebuilding. Didn't look like the one on yours thought, just a thought. I guess you would have to find a radiator historian to find more info.

For radiator codes that are Chevelle specific Team Chevelle is the best resource. But for other codes, it's a crapshoot.

A thread on TC by JEFFSCHEVELLE on 66 to 67 Chevelles....https://www.chevelles.com/forums/32...67-bbc-harrison-radiator-research-report.html

A thread for 1970 radiators...https://www.chevelles.com/forums/35-restoration-corner/284709-70-ss-chevelle-harrison-radiator.html

Often...I think...the code stamped into the tank is the tank code and not the radiator code. Tank stamping identify the individual tank and the month it was stamped. To know the radiator code you need the numbers on the tag ....as it's actually a mini buildsheet for the radiator describing build date, tank types and core. Some radiators have a part number stamped into the tank or a separate tag with the numbers attached.

I think the cross flows are 1968 and later Chevelles. You can look at some of the griffin or other radiator catalog they have the measurements of their radiators. Maybe it fits a 1970 Camaro they might have had the up turn.
